Managing The Trauma And Grief Of Recent Events
The Dobbs decision has left many of us concerned, afraid and angry. After two years of a pandemic. The murder of George Floyd. The racist murders in Buffalo. The killing of children and teachers in Texas. This decision has, for many of us, further rocked our sense of place. And as lawyers, we understand super precedent as settled law. What happens now? As professional women, we understand the role access to healthcare has had to our success. We support equal protection and due process as fundamental to the core of our democracy. And yet here we are, many of us in disbelief. Join the New York State Bar Association’s Women in Law Section for a virtual, interactive session where we can express our concerns and learn ways to process the trauma and grief so we can move on to the next steps. The conversation will be facilitated by Amy Johnston, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Director of Education at Urban Wellness.

Amy studied at Northwestern University and The University of Chicago before moving to Dublin, Ireland to work in mental health.
